Dr. Hilkovitz shares what the metabolic syndrome is.
The metabolic syndrome is a prediabetic stage. It comes before the diabetes. It’s the phase where you start putting on weight, you develop high cholesterol and high blood pressure, your family history is positive for diabetes, you have a large waistline, and you’re obese, and your BMI is over 25.
